Though he was scheduled take the reins of DC’s Supergirl as the series’ new regular writer beginning with issue #7 in June, the solicitations for Supergirl #8 list Joe Kelly handling the writing duties.

According to both Rucka and sources at DC, Kelly will be the series new writer, taking over for Rucka.

When asked about the change, Rucka told Newsarama:

"It's such a mixed blessing for me. I hate having to walk away from the book before I even got underway, but the fact is my commitments for the coming year have passed the ‘overwhelming’ stage and reached ‘apocalyptic flood’ stage. Between Checkmate, 52, Supergirl and something like three novels to be written in the next eight months, something had to give, and, sadly, it was Kara who got the axe. I hate having to let the book go, but that's the way it shook out.

"The good is, of course, that Joe Kelly is taking over, and he is, in all ways, outstanding. His ideas are amazing, and his take on Kara will be something the fans are going to love."

The solicitation for the issue reads:

Written by Joe Kelly
Art by Ron Adrian & Norm Rapmund
Cover by Joe Benitez and Victor Llamas
